"Friend of Mine"
I'm really glad to see you're having so much fun, I swear!
And moving on without me as if I never had been there
It's wonderful that you can just pretend it's all okay
Really, I'm just fine alone; so run along and play
Play your game
Dear friend of mine, what you did was wrong
It doesn't make it better just because you've carried on
Dear friend of mine, I'm feeling so used
Who'd have thought that such a friend would leave me so abused
It's great that your position is worth more than what is right
Better to stay quiet than stand up and start a fight
I hope you're very comfortable; you'll never take that fall
Or maybe I'm deluded to think it matters at all
But it matters to me
I wonder how you sleep at night, knowing what you've done
It it heavy in your stomach when you're having all that fun?
You say it's so #### logical; you'll never compromise
But have you ever even thought to go apologize?
Lord knows I have
But how about you?
[CODA - Raise key]
We know #### well there's blame to share
So swallow your ###### pride
I know the taste is bitter
'Cause it's all I've got inside
Would it kill you to admit it?
Would it kill you just to see?
A person's not a robot
We feel and touch and plea
Maybe you feel justified
Like I have all along
At least I've got the heart
To admit the times I'm wrong
And if this #### means more to you
Than all that's been decried
Then who needs you?
Maybe someday I'll remember what it's like to be happy and I'll write a song that isn't just misery 24/7. Anyway I'm trying to decide if I should shoehorn this into Oh, Tonight or put it on a future album
